Having problems with your 1983 GMC C2500 ?

C2500 250 engine won't start during cold weather

\015 I have a 1983 C2500 and have problems getting it started during the winter months. If I start the engine and stay on the gas until the engine is completely warm it will not start the next time I try. If I start the engine and let it lope to warm and the engine stalls it will not start until spring time. I have rebuilt the carb, checked the cap and rotor and everything is as it should be. (no excessinve wear on distributor). The engine turns over but will not start. I have checked the plugs to ensure that I was getting spark. #6, and #8 cylinder have an excessinve amount of fuel coming from them. (That is why the carb was rebuilt). Any suggestinos as to what the problem may be?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 25-10-2021

Answers :

What it does is due to cold temperature your fuel lines makes moisture and tend to froze that could cause hard start you might check your fuel lines for corrosion and deterioration also check your battery voltage too.
I had the same problem on my truck. go to a autopart store and they will give what is called a block warmer it's basicly a peice that you install on the block of your engine and then at night plug it in to the 110 socket of you garage or out door plug, starts right up in the cold morning just don't forget to un plug it i did lol....... hope this could help you.
